My First Year at FTI Delta
My journey at FTI Delta began as an intern in the Dubai office, where I embarked on a remarkable learning experience.

What made the experience truly transformative was the environment of empowerment, where I was not just encouraged but actively nurtured to contribute my ideas to the team's collective efforts.
As my internship came to a close, FTI Delta made a significant move by opening a new office in Riyadh. With the Riyadh office's inception, I was offered the exciting opportunity to transition into a full-time Business Analyst role. This marked a pivotal moment in my career journey, as I joined the core team in shaping the future of the Riyadh office and its strategy consulting practices. The transition represented a new chapter, filled with fresh challenges and the chance to make a meaningful impact in a rapidly evolving consulting landscape.
My Day-to-Day Experience at FTI Delta
A typical day for me begins early in the morning. As I sip my coffee, I delve into my inbox, checking for urgent client emails or messages, and ensuring I stay updated on project developments.
My day is marked by a series of client meetings. Some take place virtually, while others require me to commute to the client's office. These meetings are the heart of my work, where I sit down with clients to gain a deep understanding of their business challenges, and objectives, and provide updates on project progress.
After the meetings, I dive into the world of data analysis. Armed with financial reports, market research data, and internal client information searching for insights that can lead to breakthrough solutions. Data analysis is a vital part of my daily routine, providing the foundation for informed recommendations and decisions.
After a morning filled with meetings and data analysis, I gather with my team to brainstorm and develop strategies. We put our collective minds together to create innovative solutions, refining our ideas and strategies to address the unique challenges faced by our clients.
With our strategies in place, it's time to create reports and presentations. My team and I understand the importance of conveying our findings and recommendations clearly and persuasively. The documents we produce are well-researched and beautifully designed to make a lasting impression.
Throughout my day, I have frequent interactions with clients. I maintain regular communication, providing updates, and addressing questions. The back-and-forth with clients is essential to ensure their needs are being met and that the project is on the right track.
In the world of consulting, collaboration is key. I work closely with my colleagues, sharing insights and expertise, and ensuring that the team's collective knowledge is harnessed for the success of the project. Each day is a new chapter in the ever-evolving story of our consulting careers.
